Can you recommend a good hair setting gel/lotion?

Asked by DarlingRhadamanthus (11203 points ) May 7th, 2012

After I wash my hair, I sometimes curl it (it’s a bit below shoulder length). I blow dry the roots for volume, then while the ends are damp, I put bendy wire curlers in it. I used to use an amazing spray setting gel that would hold the curl for ages, no matter the weather. It has been discontinued. I tried a TIGI product to no avail (Maxx? or something?)

Can you recommend a product that will hold a hairset (in curlers) well…and that can be used on damp hair?

Any info would be appreciated.

Do you go to a salon to get your hair cut? Could you ask your stylist maybe, if you do? The problem is that everyone’s hair is different and a hair setting gel/lotion that works for me, or another person, might not work for you or your hair.

I no longer curl my hair but years ago I liked the results I got with a Pantene setting gel. Don’t know if they still make any.

I don’t curl my hair because it is already curly, but when I’ve done my hair in beehives and other styles that require a lot of hold, I use hairspray from Garnier Fructis. It’s cheap and it’s always worked well for me!

Thanks guys….I will look into some of those products. I am not having a lot of luck replacing my old trusted product….<sigh>

It’s soo frustrating when that happens! I feel for you. I like VO5 stuff and Treseme. Also I would ask your hairdresser what they use, they often sell the products they use! Good luck xx
